Not so little blue box(es)

This time of the year, I get to play Santa delivering these Leather Craftsmen albums to my clients. Still can't afford a sleigh so I can only go local :) When I walk into their homes, it gives me great joy to see photographs I took hanging on the walls... I've been blessed with truly amazing clients and most of them I'm now lucky to call friends.

I'm off for some family time but for any wedding emergencies, call me! :)
Warmest holiday wishes to all!

PUG Holiday Fun

We just had our PUG's holiday party at Life on Wilshire and it was a lot of fun. I say it all the time, but I truly enjoy meeting other photographers, talking shop & chatting about life.

Here are a few photos i grabbed from Jules' blog.

Simply marvelous...

Maita of Simply Marvelous Weddings asked me to photograph her daughters. These girls are really cute! They seem so different yet so alike. I was telling her how my sister & I pulled each other's hair for as long as I can remember and yet will always be each other's "best-est" friend.

It was a pleasure meeting your family Maita! Thanks again for the bag of goodies. Sugar actually is my other best friend :)

Nicky & Danny + beautiful So. Cali December day.

Fa la la la la la la la la

My mom has a Christmas list with over 300 names and handpicks these presents every year. Guess who had to learn gift wrapping at age 2? ;) At one point, I almost believed that we were Santa's Asian headquarters.

I just love the holidays and everything Christmas-y.
Last night, I went to get my tree - and when I first saw it, I knew it was the one...

Someone's liking gold this year,

Thanks mom for decking out my wreath. She refused to call it decor when it was just a round, green thing.

Little Lozano

The girls love this little fella. He's had a girlfriend since before he turned 2... Was so excited to spend last weekend with my nephews. Too bad because of the snow & non-stop rain, it was literally a 5 minute photo shoot!

Here's Guilly working it...

Adorable sisters

I am solar powered - thus, not a big fan of short days this time of the year. One thing I love about it though is we get great afternoon light early enough to photograph the little ones at their best.

These two little girls are so adorable! Julianne was a pro -
Here's little Avery who opted to be photographed in her swimwear :)
Knock knock...
I really like this series... I call it "the smile an apple sauce brings"

Leather Craftsmen Pizza Party

Today I went to the Leather Craftsmen Pizza Party at Robert Evans Studio. It's always great to meet new photographers and reconnect with ones that have constantly inspired my work.
